Michael Louis Kelly Profile
The Kelly Family
  Mr. Kelly grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and after completing law school, joined Kirtland & Packard LLP in 1978 as an associate attorney. He developed his substantial skills as a trial lawyer, representing Fortune 500 companies in high profile litigation matters. In the late 1990’s he changed the focus of his practice to representing consumers against corporate America, and has become a tireless advocate of consumer rights. His intimate knowledge of corporate America, from his many years spent “on the inside” gives his clients a distinct edge in litigation of their claims.

Mr. Kelly lives in Hermosa Beach, California with his wife, Lindsey, a lawyer and entertainment executive. Their daughter Morgan has foresaken the beach life to work as Brand Manager for DiMassimo Goldstein in NYC.

Mr. Kelly is an avid pilot, and holds an Airline Transport Pilot license, the highest civilian rating issued by the FAA. Mr. Kelly is also type rated to fly, as a single pilot, the largest, fastest business jet certified by the Federal Aviation Administration for single pilot operation, the Raytheon RA-390 Premier I. Mr. Kelly is a volunteer pilot for the dog rescue charity Wings of Rescue, and he and his wife spend many of their weekends flying dogs from the kill shelters of Southern California to new homes in the Pacific Northwest.
